Willy Wonka's Unfair Wages

Willy Wonka's Unfair Wages

The next time you want to fill that sweet tooth craving and you reach over to that Hershey's chocolate on the check out candy shelf, here's a little video highlighting what you should remember about that company...

Not really sure what to say that the video didn't already cover. I mean, yeah, it's a bit silly to think that workers of the world unite. But it's a valid point and should make you second guess the next time you're at the grocery store check out stand and have that craving for a milk chocolate bar.

Though I probably should remind you that even if they were to treat their guest workers with dignity and pay them an honest wage while also providing safe conditions, they would still be getting their cocoa from plantations that utilize child/slave labor.

I mean, not to discredit these foreign workers plight, but when I hear "protesting against Hershey's treatment of workers" I would first think that they're talking about their slaves.

So even if you didn't watch the video just remember this - Fuck Hershey's.
